Welcome to Bookish Pursuits!

My name is Joyce and this is my humble playground in cyberspace where my insanity runs amok. I created this book blog with the intention of using it for my thoughts,opinions, and reviews on the books I've read and the books I want to read. This is also where I'll keep a tab of all the reading challenges I decide to participate in, and interesting excerpts from the books I'm reading, as well as any odds and ends related to books and reading.

If you're interested, feel free to follow me and I will probably return the favour.

I’m a voracious reader and I enjoy a variety of genres including young-adult, romance, classics, mystery, fantasy, and historical fiction.

I would love to hear book recommendations from fellow booklovers. So if you want to share a recommendation or two, you can check out my Never-ending Reading List and leave me any suggestions in any of the comments section below.

It's Monday! What are you Reading?

It's Monday, What are you Reading is a weekly Meme run by Sheila @ One Persons Journey through a world of Books. This meme spotlights the books we completed last week, the books we are currently reading, and the books we hope to finish this week.

This is the very first time that I'll be doing this meme and I'm very excited. I found a lot of fellow bloggers doing It's Monday, What are you Reading? so I decided to join in the bandwagon.

I just got back from a long reading slump but I'm happy to find myself slowly worming my way back into reading.

What I Finished This Week?

Just Listen by Sarah Dessen - Such a fantastic book! The first book by Sarah Dessen that I've read. My full review can be found here.

What’s Coming Up This Week?

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan - I'm currently on the second chapter and I'm really enjoying it so far. Percy Jackson is very funny.
One Reckless Summer by Toni Blake - I haven't read any contemporary romance this year so I'm excited to read this book.
Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen I loved Garden Spells so I'm very excited to read another novel from this author.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows - Have read so many good reviews about this book.

Those books are what I plan to finish this week. I'll also be posting my reviews of each book once I'm done reading. So, what books will you be reading this week?


  1. I want to read Sarah Dessen! Hope you have a wonderful week and thanks for joining the meme.

    I am linking you to the linky in the post in case you did not on that meme. That really helps drive people to your blog.

    Love your layout! :D

  2. Hi Sheila,

    Thank you for dropping by my blog! :) I truly enjoyed Just Listen by Sarah Dessen. I might pick up The Truth About Forever next. I've read many good feedback about it.

    And thank you for linking my blog on that meme. I'll remember to do that on the the succeeding post for this meme.

    Thank you once again Sheila.

    Have a nice day. Happy Reading!
